Bo Scarbrough says Alabama “should beat the dog —- out of LSU”

One former Alabama player is ready for Saturday’s matchup versus LSU.

Bo Scarbrough, a Tuscaloosa native, played running back for the Crimson Tide from 2015 to 2017. He was on two Southeastern Conference Championship teams (2015, 2016) and two national championship teams (2015, 2017).

Scarbrough knows the importance of the LSU game, especially the physicality of both teams.

He was featured Monday via In My Own Words with Stephen Smith of TDA Magazine to talk about the game. Scarbrough wants to see a dominant effort on defense from Alabama.

“I want to see everyone being where they need to be at,” Scarbrough said. “I want everyone pursuing the football. We have enough upfront to stop the run. We have two linebackers that can fill gaps and stop the run. I want to see everyone fundamentally sound and people flying to the ball. We are coming off a bye week. Everyone should be well-rested and good to go. These guys are going to be in the right position. We are going to surprise some people in this game. The defense is going to step up in this game.”

Scarbrough said the team needs to treat LSU like a championship game.

Alabama has a few Louisiana natives on the team. During his time with the Tide, Scarbrough played with Louisiana natives — including Cam Robinson, Denzel Devall, Laurence “Hootie” Jones, and Cam Sims. Each year, the game against LSU is special for these players. It allows them to prove they chose the right place in taking Alabama over the Tigers in recruiting.

Scarbrough said players from Louisiana that are with the Tide are focused on this game more than anyone else.

“It would be hell for Alabama if I was at LSU, and I had to play them in my hometown,” he said “I am assuming that those guys from Louisiana should beat the dog —- out of them.”

Both teams will play at 6:00 p.m. CT on ESPN.
